This Dinner Party Invites People Of All Faiths To Break Bread Together

Open Iftar events are held outdoors (weather permitting), and are open to all. Often there are guest speakers and evening prayers, and then everyone —Muslim and non-Muslim alike —breaks bread together. Above, attendees at the first U.S. Open Iftar, held in Portland, Ore., in 2016.

Iftar is the nightly meal breaking the Ramadan fast. The Open Iftar project stages meals outdoors, encouraging Muslims and non-Muslims to move beyond religious divides to get to know each other.
